A USA Today bestselling novel

Leda Stowe loves living on her tiny island off the California coast, taking care of rescued exotic animals. But her peaceful existence is interrupted one night when a gorgeous man with a sword appears out of nowhere in her lion's enclosure.

Instead of fearing for his life, the man has a conversation with the lion and casually walks out to face Leda—all six foot and change of him, wearing nothing but jeans riding low on his hips. He exudes more life magic than Leda has ever seen, easily erasing the wards she's put on her island home and imposing his own.

He is Hunter, one of the Immortal brothers, jerked away from his snug bed by the Calling spell, thrown here when the spell was broken. He knows there's something wrong with the world, but he'd rather hole up on this quiet island with the beautiful Leda, and let the world deal with it.

But too soon Leda and Hunter, and the lion Mukasa, must journey to the mainland to join Hunter's brothers for the final battle against evil, to rescue the trapped Tain, which will call for Hunter to make a sacrifice that threatens to break him.

This is a full-length novel (95,000 words).

For seven hundred years the Immortal warrior Tain was held captive and tortured by a powerful demon, and retreated into madness to escape his pain. Set free by his brothers, Tain has wandered the world, but he’s drawn to Los Angeles, a city divided by demon lords and vampire masters, the death-magic creatures barely kept in line by strict rules and the paranormal police.

Samantha Taylor, detective in the paranormal division, is committed to bringing down drug-selling demons and vampires who turn too many victims. Her stakeout of a demon club is blown by the appearance of a man with amazing power, who kills the attacking demons with one burst of magic.

Samantha is shocked to see the man is Tain, the Immortal she helped rescue, whose healing touch burns her.

Tain is back, and he needs Samantha’s help. Young demon women are being murdered, and though Tain has no love for demons, he recognizes that they are innocents. He’s also powerfully drawn to Samantha, a half demon, and fears his pull to her means he hasn’t healed from his ordeal. 

Tain reveals to Samantha more about herself than she’s comfortable knowing, but though she’s falling for Tain, she knows he’ll never allow himself to be tied to demonkind again.

When the killer endangers them both, as well as people they love, Tain and Samantha must solve the case together and fight the growing, powerful attraction between them, a battle they are steadily losing.

Welcome back to the world of the Immortals, where vamps, weres, demons, witches, and Immortals warriors exist in the real world, and the forces of life magic and death magic struggle for balance.

The Redeeming is a full-length novel of 100,000 words, which can be read as a standalone.

A USA Today bestselling novel

Amber has never heard of the Immortals--ancient warriors who come to the aid of those in trouble, summoned by the Calling spell. She only learns about them when one crashes into the deserted warehouse where she's fighting the demon who murdered her sister, and proceeds to beat back the demon and destroy every single one of Amber's protective spells.

Adrian, the oldest Immortal, is intrigued by the lone young woman trying to face an ancient demon, an Old One. He saves her life and takes her home, wanting to know more about her, and the story of her sister's quest and death. He discovers that Amber's sister had found Adrian's brother, Tain, lost for seven hundred years, and has left clues as to where to seek him.

Adrian wants to leave Amber behind, out of danger, as he searches for Tain, but Amber sticks to him, needing to know the truth about what happened to her sister. She's also drawn to this hard-edged man in the leather coat, who looks more like a biker than an ancient warrior, and finds herself falling for his dark eyes, warm voice, and incredible magic.

Together they begin their quest, traveling to Los Angeles to consult with a vampire master and a dragon, then into the wilderness to continue the search.

They discover that their quest goes far beyond finding Tain or confronting the demon--the problem touches the edge of a far greater plan that puts the entire world in danger. Only the Immortals--all of them together--can hope to stop it.

The danger to Adrian is even greater--he has found his soul-mate in the warm-hearted Amber and he'll do anything to keep her safe.

Book One of the Immortals, a multi-author series by Jennifer Ashley, Robin Popp, and Joy Nash. This is a full-length novel of 95,000 words.

In the world of the Immortals, vampires, shape-shifters, and other magical beings exist side-by-side with humans, sometimes benevolently, sometimes violently. The Immortal warriors were born and bred to keep the forces of death-magic at bay, a challenge in a world that has forgotten what the Immortals were for.

Mariah isn’t an Immortal—she’s a low-level telepath for the paranormal division of the LAPD. Her assignment today is to search out a vampire buried deep beneath a newly renovated vampire club.

When Mariah reaches the club, she senses the vamp’s an Old One, an ancient being from the dawn of time. She needs to take him in and turn him over to those up the food chain as quickly as possible, because letting a vamp come too close will drain Mariah of her powers and render her helpless against the death-magic creatures it’s her job to pursue.

Cai, who’s been in dark sleep since his enemies buried him a few centuries ago, emerges into a brand new world. His rescuer is a beautiful human woman who becomes his only link to understanding this city of metal and concrete, with its rules to keep vampires in check. No more hunting vamps to the death—now vampires are regulated, restricted, all but muzzled.

Mariah seems to understand his distance from the world, because she experiences the same disconnection. Cai hopes to make her his own, but he soon learns that touching her will hurt her more than he can stand. Cai has already lost everyone dear to him and refuses to lose her as well. But when danger comes, the only choices he can make are heartbreaking ones. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Cambria} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Cambria; min-height: 14.0px} p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Cambria} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Cambria; min-height: 14.0px}
